    Am I tripping?

    Looks like some hefty defroster lines not allowing the tint to adhere close to the lines, no uncommon. Most of those look like they can be pressed down if they have not dried to much. Take it in and see what they say

    Tint Concern

    Tint amplified imperfections in the windows, so a scratch that was there before will stand out more after the tint is applied. With regard to the photo it looks like contamination from that angle, would need to see it from a few angles to properly diagnose. Hope this helps!

    Amount to save to open a automotive tint shop?

    There are different stages in figure this out and the first part would be location. If you have a location in mind then you would want to walk the property with the mindset of what it will take to get it up and running. Second, what is the overhead on this property? Rent, Utilities, trash etc etc. Once you have a basic number to run your business then it comes time to inventory. Do you want to buy film one roll at a time and replace as needed (recommended for new shops) only if your suppliers can deliver quickly does this apply. So lets run some examples. Monthly Recurring Costs (AP) Rent: $1500 Utilities: $500 Trash: $75 Insurance: $120 Total: $2195 Your personal income needs: Rent: $950 Utilities: $400 Insurance: $130 Phone: $120 Vehicle: $350 Gas: $175 Food: $300 Misc: $250 Total: $2675 Combined Total: $4870/month, $58440/yr Looks like a large number....holy hell what are we going to do??? Break it down to daily...$160.11/day That is just the cost of doing business and living expenses, adjust your numbers accordingly. Once you get your numbers where they need to be, project them out 6 months, and in this example we would get, $18245 add 10% for a safety net and we are looking at approx. $20k needed to save to open a shop and have 6 months of expenses. This does not include things like marketing, inventory, tools etc etc Those would be above and beyond the initial $20k. Having started numerous retail shops over the years I have done this many many times.
